On the third day of the US Open, the media asked how McIlroy prepared for the final game. He replied with obvious items such as maintaining fitness in the gym, relaxing with family, going to bed early and indispensable chicken bread.

“The last five nights, every meal I have had chicken burgers served to my room. Maybe the same dish today,” McIlroy revealed on June 19 after the penultimate round of 67 strokes. Thanks to that, he jumped 17 places to T4. This position is adjacent to the top of the board, two clubs away.

According to McIlroy, the filling in the dish “takes luck”, in addition to roasted chicken, there is also avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic mayonnaise. “It’s delicious,” he rated the property’s service quality.

Yesterday, McIlroy from the rough outside the green scored a birdie on the 12th hole with a nearly 30-meter chip.

Hole 12 and par4 were in the top 3 in terms of difficulty from the start, but McIlroy all three rounds birdies this stage.

McIlroy was born in 1989, has owned 19 PGA Tour championships and 14 European Tour titles, including four majors but has not reached the grand slam milestone due to the lack of Masters. The Northern Ireland player won the US Open in 2011.

But it’s not just McIlroy this weekend who is superstitious about food. Mackenzie Hughes had been on pizza for two nights and didn’t want to change it yesterday. Because Hughes is standing at T1 at -5, next to Louis Oosthuizen and Russell Henley. In the penultimate round of 68, the Canadian golfer scored an eagle from a 18.2-meter putt on the 13th green.

“I ate pizza both last night and it’s still the same today. I kind of believe in the paranormal,” Hughes said, laughing.

The story of “eating to succeed” has happened in the major before. Both times winning the Masters, in 2012 and 2014, Bubba Watson ate burrito – cornmeal rolls in Mexican cuisine.

“In Augusta 2012, I ate a burrito or two every day, for 10 days straight. And I ate so freely because my wife didn’t come with me because I was busy taking care of Caleb – adopted child,” Watson said in one. recent program on radio NBC.

At the 2013 Masters, Watson dropped the burrito and finished T50 (+7). In the next year’s tournament, he returned to the lucky item and was crowned for the second time. This year’s US Open, Watson is at T31 (point +3).
